Bernie has unveiled his Green New Deal plan! Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.
"Sen. Bernie Sanders was the first of the 2020 Democratic presidential contenders to back the Green New Deal, a resolution put together by Congress’s most progressive lawmakers, outlining goals and principles for the US fight against climate change.
But the resolution, unveiled in February, was sparse on details, and Sanders didn’t fill in the blanks at the time. Since then, other presidential candidates have issued their own climate change proposals, some more ambitious than others. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, even made climate change the centerpiece of his now-ended 2020 campaign, having released a six-part set of policies to tackle warming.
On Thursday, Sanders finally responded with his own agenda to fight climate change. It’s his longest policy proposal yet, and in true Sanders form, it calls for the largest government outlay of any of the climate plans out there, commits to a massive surge in union jobs, and it picks a fight with the fossil fuel industry."
